After retiring as a Marine JAG officer after 22 years of honorable service, Mr. Stackhouse opened the military defense Law Offices of Phillip Stackhouse, PLLC with a specific focus on protecting the rights of American service men and women. If you are facing a command investigation that could lead to administrative separation or a possible court martial for criminal charges, we cannot stress it enough: It is crucial that you choose a military defense attorney with the track record, knowledge, and skill needed to successfully address your legal matter.
How Does Military Justice Differ?
Depending upon the severity and nature of the offense, the UCMJ has two specific tracks of possible penalties for service personnel facing a criminal charge or disciplinary action for misconduct. For disciplinary procedures beyond the immediate command level, for example Article 15 offenses, a command investigation or criminal investigation is conducted to determine whether the seriousness of the offense merits a court martial for criminal charges, or administrative separation from service.
Don't Wait for a Court Martial to Get a Military Defense Attorney
It is critically important that you seek experienced legal counsel as soon as you are notified that a command investigation, criminal investigation, administrative separation board or board of inquiry has been convened to review your case. Even if you have already made a statement about your involvement, a knowledgeable attorney can move to have the statement dismissed, if it was taken or demanded in violation of your rights.
